The Anderson 400 has an impressive history with many of the top drivers competing in the legendary event in the previous 37 years. Tiny Lund of South Carolina won the 1974 race with Bobby Allison, Darrell Waltrip and Rusty Wallace all making at least one appearance in the event.

The winner's list is a who's who of short track racing including Dave Watson, Mark Martin, Bob Senneker, Alan Kulwicki, Dick Trickle, Mike Eddy, Bryan Reffner, Kevin Cywinski and Gary St. Amant. Added with the recent Sunoco Super Series winners, the list is one of the most renowned in stock car racing.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Sunoco Super Series Late Models are sanctioning the historic event. Greenfield's Kenny Tweedy won the inaugural event with the Sunoco Super Series in 2000, fending off challenges from two of the greatest stock car drivers, Canadian Hall of Fame member Junior Hanley and Badger standout Scott Hansen.

Daleville's Bull Baker took the checkered flag in 2001 with Chet Fillip and Bobby Parsley winning the last two events. Fillip became the first driver in history to win the Pay Less / Delco Remy Little 500 and Anderson 400. Kentucky's Parsley earned the prestigious victory last July, holding off a furious challenge from Hanley.

One of the most accomplished drivers in Midwestern stock car racing, Mike Eddy will compete in the 38th NationsRent 400 presented by Corteco and Great Deals. The seven-time American Speed Association Champion will drive for Ohio car owner Jeff Miller.

Eddy’s 2004 appearance marks his initial start in the Sunoco Super Series Late Models and his return to the historic NationsRent 400. He last appeared in the event in1998.
